Do Something Nice Day --

Even when you really don't feel like it. If the foot shaking under the table doesn't give you away, then the gum snapping certainly does: You're anxious. And however you cope with your anxiety -- or don't -- recent research reveals an all-natural fix: Being nice. Turns out that good deeds, or kind acts, can make socially anxious people feel a whole lot better. So whether you suffer from anxiety, or just need a way to boost your mood, here are 10 everyday ways to do something nice for someone -- and make yourself feel better in the process:

  1. When you're driving, let someone merge into your lane.
  2. Smile and make eye contact with people in the grocery store.
  3. Pay the toll for the person in the car behind you.
  4. Baby-sit for your neighbor's kids while she takes a nap.
  5. Make small talk with the cashier at your dry cleaner.
  6. Visit family members you haven't seen in awhile.
  7. Volunteer to run an errand for a busy co-worker.
  8. Drive a friend to the airport.
  9. Give a genuine compliment to someone.
  10. Over-tip your delivery person.
